General Hospital Transcript Friday 9/30/05
Proofread by Brian
Courtney: Oh, God.
Nikolas: Hey, you're up. How are you? You were sleeping so soundly, I --
Nikolas: Whoa. You all right? What's wrong?
Courtney: Look, there's something we need to talk about.
Sam: I know you went out yesterday. Where did you go?
Jason: I went to Sonny's compound.
Sam: By yourself?
Jason: Yeah, I stood outside the gate, just looking in -- you know, waiting to feel a connection, waiting for Sonny to feel like a brother or family or something.
Sam: Well, you said yesterday you felt some sort of connection.
Jason: Yeah. I'm not sure what that was. Maybe a memory, or maybe nothing.
Emily: How'd you sleep?
Faith: You need to take it easy today, and don't worry.
Emily: About the kids.
Faith: I'm going to take care of them.
Lainey: Carly needs immediate medical attention.
Ric: Look, Sonny is checking out Roselawn, the facility that you suggested to him, all right? He's probably going to send her there.
Lainey: So why haven't we heard from him?
Ric: We will.
Lainey: Well, time is a luxury we don't have right here. Carly is deteriorating by the hour.
Justus: If we bring Alcazar into this, Carly can be in the hospital by the end of the day.
Ric: I am not going to go against my brother.
Emily: Max, would you bring the boys up from the guest house? I'm taking them to the park.
Max: Yeah, sure.
Carly: You're not going anywhere! I won't let you take my children.
Emily: Carly, donít.
Carly: No, I have to stop you, Faith!
Emily: Ric! Somebody! Carly, stop!
Ric: Carly, Carly, easy! Give me -- give me it.
Carly: No! No!
Ric: No, give me the bat. Give me it. Give me it.
Carly: No! Don't let her take my kids!
Ric: It's ok, it's ok, it's ok.
Justus: You ok
Emily: Yeah, I'm fine.
Lainey: Get the children off the property.
Carly: No, not my babies!
Ric: No, no, shh. No, no, go, please. Just go and take a guard.
Lainey: They're fine, they're fine, ok? Nobody's going to hurt them.
Ric: Calm down. Carly, Carly --
Carly: You're going to give her my kids?
Ric: Take it easy, all right?
Lainey: Your children are safe. Nobody's going to hurt them.
Carly: Oh, no. Where's Sonny?
Ric: No, he's coming back.
Carly: What? No --
Ric: He's coming back.
Carly: But what did you do with him?
Ric: He's fine. He's fine, sweetie. He's fine, ok? He's coming back. Carly? Carly? Think. I need for you to focus on what's real. Don't give in to this.
Nikolas: About last night, you're wondering why I got home so late?
Courtney: Oh, no. Meetings run late, I understand.
Nikolas: I was with Emily.
Nikolas: She called and said it was important, so I went and met her on Pier 52 and I'm sorry. I should've told you last night. I'm sorry.
Courtney: Oh, hey, you're telling me now. That's what counts. Is Emily ok?
Nikolas: Yeah. Yeah, I think so. I mean, she's dealing with a lot right now and we really didn't get into many details, but I think Elizabeth losing the baby has just put things into perspective for all of us.
Courtney: Yeah? What things?
Nikolas: I don't know, just that life is fragile and we shouldn't waste time or dwell on what might have been. Basically, I mean, I just decided that we need to get past all the hurt and anger and just get on with our lives and let what we -- what we had be over, you know? I mean, we want to be able to walk away as friends who always on some level love each other. You know what I mean?
Courtney: Do you think that that's possible?
Nikolas: Well, it certainly won't happen overnight, that's for sure. But, yeah, Emily and I are in a better place than we were before.
Courtney: That's great.
Nikolas: I'm sorry, I should've told you sooner. It's just that you were dealing with so much already, I didn't -- you know, I didn't want to go there.
Courtney: I'm fine. I'm ok.
Nikolas: I take it that's not what you wanted to talk to me about.
Courtney: No, it can wait. Really, it's nothing.
Nikolas: No, no, no. No, it canít. I should've let you go first anyway. Please, go. Please?
Courtney: No, hey, you have a meeting to go to.
Nikolas: So? You're more important than some stupid meeting.
Courtney: Oh, yeah? Nice try. I am not going to let you use me as an excuse to skip out on Cassadine business.
Nikolas: That's not what I'm doing.
Courtney: No? All right.
Courtney: Well, then you can prove it by leaving. I will be just fine. Promise.
Nikolas: Ok. I'll be back as soon as I can, ok?
Courtney: Sounds good.
Nikolas: We'll talk then, all right?
Lucky: I will be here the minute your shift is over. I was thinking maybe we could go to dinner, and if you're upÖ
Jax: How do you say goodbye to a life that never got started?
Elizabeth: When I lost my baby with Ric, I was so angry, and that helped. Ric and I, we hardly grieved together. And this time I feel like I've let everyone down.
Jax: Hey, no. No, you havenít. You haven't let anyone down.
Elizabeth: I keep telling myself that, but the truth is this baby mattered to so many people.
Jax: Does work help?
Elizabeth: Does it help you?
Jax: It used to. It used to shut out all kinds of pain, you know? Just chase the deal, making lots of money. But it's different this time. I keep thinking that, you know, who am I leaving it to? I keep thinking that I was a husband, I was almost a father, and now I'm alone.
Elizabeth: Grieving is a solitary experience anyway. I have a lot of family and friends to support me and a daily life to keep me going, like I have to take care of Cameron and my patients, but nobody knows how I'm feeling.
Jax: Yeah, that on some level you're grieving alone, right?
Elizabeth: Right. And Lucky says that if I just keep busy and stay focused on the future, I'll feel better.
Jax: And will you?
Elizabeth: I guess, if I can get through this next hour.
Jax: Yeah, yeah, I know that feeling.
Elizabeth: Well, is there anything I can do to help you?
Jax: Yes. Let me pick up your hospital bills.
Elizabeth: Jax, I have insurance.
Jax: I know, but insurance -- it doesn't cover everything. You know that. Look, medical bills is what got you into this mess. It'll make me feel a hell of a lot better if I could make them go away. Please.
Elizabeth: Ok. Thank you.
Jax: Ok. You're welcome. I'll see you later.
Jax: Ooh -- oh, I'm sorry. I'm sorry, that was my bad. You ok?
Courtney: Yeah, I'm fine, I'm fine. I just need to watch where I'm going. Sorry.
Jax: Sorry. Take care.
Courtney: Jax? I'm sorry. I'm just -- I'm just in such a rush. I -- how are you doing? And please don't -- don't say "Fine."
Jax: Well, you know, it's a lot more difficult than I -- than I thought it would be. You know, I started to think of myself as a parent.
Courtney: You know, I think maybe keeping busy might help.
Jax: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, it'll help when I, you know, move on with my life. That's what we're all doing, right? Moving on.
Courtney: I hope so.
Jax: Yeah. I'll see you later.
Reese: Carly's talking about Faith again. Her paranoia's only getting worse.
Ric: Hey, look, Sonny is on his way back from Roselawn. He'll be back any minute. He's probably just finalizing the paperwork so he can send her there.
Justus: Yeah, well Ric, "probably" isn't going to do it. Carly needs to be hospitalized immediately!
Ric: Justus, could you please just give me a minute to think!
Max: Mr. Lansing, your wife's here. Ahem.
Ric: Thank you, Max.
Justus: Look, Reese, Ric isn't going to call Sonny and tell him that Carly is deteriorating. You might have to do it.
Reese: And what do you want me to say exactly? "Send the mother of your children to the loony bin or else?"
Justus: Look, in his heart of all hearts, Sonny knows that Carly needs to be hospitalized.
Reese: Carly already believes that I am here to steal her life. I can't push Sonny into having her committed. I'll lose him.
Justus: You need to love Sonny enough to tell him the truth. If you don't, somebody could end up in the morgue.
Ric: Max wouldn't let you in?
Alexis: I don't want in. I want you out. And it's not for me. It's for our baby.
Ric: I canít.
Courtney: Yeah, I need a launch right away. I'm at the docks right now. Thanks.
Man: They got a good lunch special over at Kellyís. Want to come with?
Jason: No, I'm going to grab something at home. Thanks.
Man: Lunch with the little woman? I remember those days -- no, I donít.
Jason: It's Courtney, right?
Courtney: Yeah, hi Jason. Wow. You got a regular job.
Jason: On the docks running the sea-land crane.
Courtney: How do you like it?
Jason: It's ok so far.
Courtney: Well, you look happy. Anyway -- I'm glad that you're feeling better. What is it?
Jason: Did I make you cry?
Michael: Oh, hey, I got to tie my shoe.
Emily: Ok. Why don't you put this in a triple knot or something like you did last time?
Emily: Hi, Nikolas. Michael? Ok. Say hello.
Michael: If you don't mind, we're leaving now.
Emily: You hold it right there. Michael, it is not ok to be rude to Nikolas. And if you're angry with him on my behalf, then you need to stop.
Michael: Why? You're mad at him.
Emily: Listen, it's complicated, Michael, but at some point we have to decide to be civil -- that means nicer -- to one another.
Emily: Because if we didn't, everybody would go around mad all the time.
Michael: They do anyway.
Emily: Listen, Michael, sometimes it's better just to accept that this is an adult thing.
Michael: She's having a bad day.
Emily: Ok, Michael, please.
Michael: Don't make it worse.
Emily: Ok, that's enough. Say you're sorry, remind yourself to be nicer next time, and then go to Kellyís and get yourself a chocolate chip cookie and save one for me.
Emily: Yeah, we're still working on the sincerity part.
Nikolas: But you -- you really are great with him.
Emily: Thank you.
Nikolas: So are you having a bad day?
Emily: No, no, Michael just worries too much. It's a little chaotic at the house, that's all.
Nikolas: Anything I can do?
Emily: No, no, thank you.
Nikolas: Yeah. Kids starting to get to you, are they?
Emily: No, I love Michael and Morgan.
Nikolas: Right, right, but can't Sonny find another nanny? I mean --
Emily: Oh, no, they have a nanny. Leticia's great, you know, but she's only one person and, you know, she's not Michael and Morganís mother, so I'm the only adult.
Nikolas: Right. Well, what about -- what about med school?
Emily: What about it?
Nikolas: Are you going to go back?
Emily: You think I dropped out of med school because you saw me with Sonny's kids a few times? My life has kept going, Nikolas. I'm in med school and I'm current in all of my classes, and I'm considering a specialty in pediatrics.
Nikolas: I'm sure you'll be great.
Emily: You know, who knows? Maybe someday you and Courtney will adopt and I'll be your pediatrician.
Nikolas: Somehow I don't think it's going to be quite that easy.
Jason: It was just a flash, an image of you crying.
Courtney: Yeah. That was a long time ago.
Jason: Look, I'm sorry. These little flashes of memory are really all I have to go on. I'm just trying to, you know, connect them to my life somehow, so --
Courtney: Ok. Well, I mean, what do you need to know?
Jason: We were married, right?
Courtney: Yeah. Mm-hmm.
Jason: Why did we get divorced?
Courtney: Well, I guess -- I guess in the end we just weren't compatible. I mean, I couldn't handle your work and, I don't know, every time we disagreed, you just seemed to shut down a little more. But you weren't mean ever. Really, you werenít. You just -- I don't know, you just kept pulling further and further away until there was really nothing left to keep us together. Anyway, I think that we might have stayed together if -- if our baby had lived.
Jason: We had a -- we had a baby?
Courtney: Yeah, I miscarried in the first trimester. And because of the circumstances, I can't have children anymore.
Jason: Was it anything I did?
Courtney: No, no. God, no, not at all. No. You didn't even know that I was pregnant until after I miscarried, and you really did. You tried to be supportive, but you weren't emotionally invested, so you didn't really feel the same sense of loss. Anyway, it was just a big mess.
Courtney: I don't know, we probably would've broken up anyway.
Courtney: You know, things change. People change.
Jason: I made you cry again.
Courtney: No, I'm fine. There's the launch. There's --
Elizabeth: Hey, have you seen Lucky?
Elizabeth: He's supposed to be meeting me
Nurse: He'll be here. 10th floor. What'd I tell you?
Elizabeth: Oh. Thanks. Hello?
Lucky: Elizabeth, hey. I'm stuck at work.
Elizabeth: Is everything ok?
Lucky: Yeah. Durant -- he's just got us watching the harbor.
Lucky: Some family from Miami just moved in, and Sonny's -- Sonny's house was attacked. They just found three guys shot in the park. Durant wants the press to think he's doing something to stop it.
Elizabeth: Ok, will you please be careful?
Lucky: I will. Listen, I'll be home as soon as I can.
Elizabeth: Wake me up even if it's late, ok?
Lucky: I will. I love you.
Elizabeth: I love you, too.
Nurse: Wait. There's more.
Jax: Hey, it's me. Can you get away for a while?
Elizabeth: I just finished my shift. What's going on?
Jax: I think I may have found a solution to our problem.
Alexis: I should've left more than a message when I decided to leave town.
Ric: How was Vermont?
Alexis: It was really beautiful. The leaves were changing. It was -- we stayed at a country inn, and I just thought that I should give Kristina some concentrated, undiluted mommy time before the baby came.
Ric: No, of course. Of course. I understand.
Alexis: I heard that your apartment blew up. Obviously, had I known that, I would've come right back.
Ric: There's nothing you could've done.
Alexis: I take it it wasn't a gas leak?
Ric: No, it was a man named Javier Ruiz, from Miami.
Alexis: And why would he go after you?
Ric: You know, I'm going to put a guard on you and Kristina.
Alexis: Won't be necessary.
Ric: No, Sonny and I will feel better if you're both protected.
Alexis: I don't suppose there's any chance that you're going to tell me what's going on, is there?
Ric: Carly's getting worse. Ahem.
Alexis: Ric, I am really, truly sorry to hear that, but that doesn't explain why your apartment blew up and why you suddenly have an enemy in Miami. That's Sonny's life you're talking about. This is how he does his business, and for the life of me I can't figure out why you want to be a part of that.
Ric: Don't be scared. I'll be fine.
Alexis: I'll tell you what scares me. The fact that you're not scared at all.
Carly: You want to lock me up, don't you?
Lainey: No one wants to lock you up, Carly, but you need more help than I can give you here.
Carly: What kind of doctor are you?
Lainey: I'm a psychiatrist.
Carly: Did Sonny call you? Does he know that you're in his house?
Carly: Where -- ok, where is Sonny? Where is he?
Lainey: You know, he'll be here soon.
Carly: No, no. Sonny -- Sonny -- he wouldn't let me go to an institution. He promised.
Lainey: I'm going to give you a little something that'll help you sleep.
Carly: No, you already gave me a shot.
Lainey: This is just a little bit extra, you know, so that you can rest.
Carly: I said no!
Lainey: Get Ric up here. You know --
Reese: You go.
Lainey: She really seems to respond to him.
Reese: Go on, Lainey, I'll stay with her. Go ahead.
Carly: No, no. No, no!
Reese: Hey, I'm trying to help you, Carly.
Reese: I'm just trying to help.
Carly: I need my kids! I need my kids!
Lainey: We're out of options. It's time to call the police.
Justus: What happened?
Lainey: Carly's paranoia is increasing. She wouldn't let me inject her. There's no way to calm her down. She's a threat to herself and to everyone around her.
Lainey: Where's Carly?
Justus: Come here, sweetheart.
Reese: She got away.
Ric: Alexis, it's a complicated situation, all right? At this point, I'm every bit as involved as Sonny.
Alexis: Ric, what have you done? What have you done? Why would this family want to come after you?
Ric: You don't want to know the details.
Alexis: Yes, I do.
Ric: All right. I got in farther than I intended. And now there's no way out.
Alexis: Yes, there is. Walk away. Just walk away. Come back to me and Kristina and our baby. I know that you want to make everything all right for Sonny. I know you want to step in and fix it, but you canít. You won't be able to. You're not a criminal, and you certainly aren't a killer.
Ric: Carly, no, no, no. Carly, Carly, no, no.
Carly: Listen, you can't lock me in!
Ric: No, no -- Sonny's going to want to see you when you get back. Come on, come on.
Carly: You let her in here, didn't you?
Alexis: Carly, it's all right.
Carly: Ok, listen to me, ok? Protect your children. Faith killed my babies!
Ric: Carly --
Carly: She will kill yours!
Ric: Carly, Carly, come here. Carly, Carly!
Emily: Getting on with our lives won't be easy, but what choice do we have, you know? I'm not leaving town, and I'm assuming you won't either.
Nikolas: No, no, probably not.
Emily: And as for Courtney, I know that she never meant for this to work out the way that it did.
Nikolas: None of us did.
Emily: Nikolas, you've -- you've been a part of my life for such a long time now. We share best friends, you know, lots of history. We can't ignore those connections, so I guess we'll just have to find a way to relate.
Emily: I mean, if that's the word -- I don't know.
Nikolas: You really think that's going to be possible? We loved each other. We were going to spend the rest of our lives together.
Emily: Yeah, and I guess I can choose to feel terrible because we didn't work out, or I can choose to feel grateful for the years of beautiful memories. You know, grandmother used to say that a mistake is only a mistake if you don't learn from it. So I'm trying to learn. And if and when I fall in love again, I'll do better.
Nikolas: I've always thought, and I still do -- I think you're amazing.
Emily: Well, we'll never get back to where we were, but we can still be kind to each other, huh? I guess we have that left in us.
Nikolas: Yes, we do.
Lucky: Hi. Is Nikolas around?
Courtney: Actually, Nikolas -- he went to a meeting, and I don't know when he's going to be back.
Lucky: Well, he isn't picking up his cell phone.
Courtney: Is Elizabeth ok?
Lucky: Yeah, she seems to be. She insisted on going back to work and I had to patrol the docks, so I thought I'd come over, share some -- some great news with Nikolas.
Courtney: Yeah? What is it? Oh --
Lucky: Listen, if you just tell Nikolas that I came by to --
Courtney: Yeah. Look, Lucky, I'm sorry. Obviously, it's none of my business.
Lucky: No, it's just that I've been a jerk through all this, and I'm trying not to be.
Courtney: Did you want to tell your brother that Elizabeth can still get pregnant?
Lucky: How did you know?
Courtney: Jax told me at the hospital.
Lucky: But you didn't tell Nikolas?
Courtney: No, no, no, no. No, we've barely even seen each other. You should tell him. You're his brother.
Lucky: Thank you.
Courtney: Hey, Lucky? I'm so happy for you guys. I guess miracles really can happen, right?
Lucky: Yeah, maybe they do. Anyway, just tell Nikolas I came over.
Jax: I'm over here. It's a beautiful view, don't you think?
Jax: We should give this -- this tree time to settle before the winter really hits.
Elizabeth: Why are you planting a tree?
Jax: To honor our child. And to give us a chance to say goodbye.
Ric: Carly just got through the gate.
Justus: Damn it.
Ric: I sent some men after her, all right? How did she get out of the house?
Justus: Well, she stabbed Reese with a syringe and went out through the window.
Ric: What was in the syringe?
Justus: Lainey said it was a mild sedative.
Reese: It's already starting to wear off. I'm ok.
Ric: All right. How did this happen?
Reese: Lainey went to inject Carly and she batted the needle away, and it was lying on the bed when I was alone with Carly, and she picked it up and she stuck me, and -- she was always faster than me.
Ric: All right, all right, just take --
Reese: She was always better at sports.
Ric: Shh, shh. Just take it easy, ok?
Lainey: I just spoke with John Durant.
Ric: You -- you called the D.A.?
Lainey: Carly's violent and delusional.
Ric: You should have let me handle this!
Lainey: As Carlyís physician, I am legally obliged to notify her immediate family and the police if she's at risk.
Ric: That's great. What am I supposed to tell Sonny now, huh?
Alexis: Ric, do you hear yourself? All this chaos going around, all you can think about is what will Sonny think? He's taken over your life.
Ric: Max, will you please take Alexis home? Escort her, make sure she has a guard on her and Kristina.
Alexis: My God, you even sound exactly like him. I wonder how long it'll be before you start throwing the glassware and -- and waving a gun around.
Ric: Alexis, I cannot do this now. Please, Max, will you take her home?
Alexis: Let's go, Max.
Ric: Ok, Justus, you need to deal with Durant. You do whatever it takes to back him off. I got to find Carly. It's essential her mother doesn't know. Definitely not Jason. Maybe Emily knows.
Emily: How many cookies has Michael had? Ok. Will you be sure he gets some milk? Listen, he needs to eat something with some real nutritional value. Yeah, you know, a burger sounds fine and --
Faith: A burger sounds fine, and if you can actually get him to eat some spinach, too, you deserve a medal of valor.
Emily: Thanks. I'll be there soon. Oh, perfect. Wanna know a secret?
Elizabeth: I don't know how to start.
Jax: Just say whatever comes to mind.
Elizabeth: But how do I say goodbye to a child that never was?
Jax: What would you say if our child were here?
Elizabeth: That I dreamed she was a girl. I know you were.
Jax: Yeah, so do I.
Elizabeth: And I will always regret not being able to share my life with you.
Jax: I was going to spoil you rotten.
Elizabeth: And I was going to teach you how to be independent, how to take care of yourself.
Jax: How to read a prospectus.
Elizabeth: How to braid your hair.
Jax: Was going to teach you how to fly a plane, order dinner in French, and hike across Alaska.
Elizabeth: I just wanted to teach you how to clean a kitchen, how to balance a checkbook, be your own person.
Jax: This -- this tree will grow like you would have. And when we come to visit, it'll remind us of your spirit soaring. And we'll be glad for the time that we had together.
Elizabeth: You are so loved, little girl. And you always will be.
Jax: Goodbye. Goodbye, my baby girl.
Nikolas: Hey. You were at Wyndermere?
Lucky: Yeah, I was looking for you.
Nikolas: Why? Is Elizabeth all right?
Lucky: Yeah, yeah, she's better. I just wanted to tell you why in person.
Lucky: Elizabeth can still get pregnant.
Nikolas: Oh, man, congratulations. That's great. That's great.
Nikolas: Yeah, the two of you will make great parents.
Lucky: Yeah, well, someday, I hope.
Nikolas: I really am happy for you.
Lucky: You know -- you know who I wanted to tell first?
Nikolas: Let me guess. Our mother?
Lucky: How'd you guess?
Nikolas: We're brothers. What can I say? And I'm sure she'd be thrilled if you did.
Lucky: Well, there's no hurry. I mean, Cameron -- I mean, he's more than enough for now. And Elizabeth and I -- we're just still trying to dig our way out of debt. But maybe, someday, I hope.
Nikolas: Sooner than later, if you ask me.
Lucky: Yeah -- listen, I know I haven't been the greatest brother lately, and I just --
Nikolas: Stop, stop. No more apologies, ok? It's ok.
Lucky: I wish -- I wish you and Courtney the best. That's all I'm trying to say.
Nikolas: I can't tell you how much that means to me, man. Thank you. Thanks. All right.
Faith: Carly, what are you doing?
Carly: You bitch. You killed my children.
Emily: Carly --
>> On the next "General Hospital" --
Lucky: Elizabeth's been through enough pain. You couldn't be thinking of asking her to carry another baby for you?
Jax: What if I was?
Courtney: The pregnancy test came up positive. The test was wrong, right?
Emily: Carly, it's me --
Sonny: What have you done?
